October 16, 2013 // 12:58 am - Now that you can pre-order PlayStation 4 titles such as Knack and Warframe on Sony's PSN Store, they have adapted a new PS4 digital DRM (Digital Rights Management) policy as detailed below.

To quote: "With the PlayStation Store, you can download your games to two systems. However, playing those games is a different story. When you're on your primary system, the one you use all the time, you can play as you normally would.

But to play on another system, the owner of the game must be signed into his or her PSN account. So for instance if I go to a friend's house and want to play Knack, I need to stay signed into my PSN account in order for us to continue playing. If I am on my PS4, I can play it without signing in.

This is different from the current digital DRM practice with the PS3 where you can download on up to two systems, but don't need to be signed in with the purchasing account to play said game.

The PlayStation 4 will be available in the US on November 15th and Europe on November 29th."

Not surprised by this. I used to share a lot of games back when we had 5 activations. Now I'm pretty much buying everything. Sux for my wallet, but I understand the reasoning.

Not really seeing what some users are getting freaked out over; Sony definitely had a lot of people just copying games to one account that a large group of friends shared with the way they implemented it last time, this makes perfect sense.

I checked the site that you sourced this information from, and they apparently get their information from the PS Store: "Well, the PlayStation Store has the first details."

I checked the store and I cant see where it explicitly says that I can only play digital game offline on my primary console and where I need to be logged in on my secondary console? Can anyone see where that information is, or is the source site just a load of crap trying to gather hits on this breaking "news".

Just wondering cause I'd hate for all of us to get duped over nothing???
